Dwarf Plum Gulf Gold Tree

Why the plums from this 3 yr old trees doesn’t taste sweet at old. Is there anyway I can improve the sweetness of the fruit? Every year it produces non sweet plums. Would it be better to dig out the plant and put in a sweet ones instead. Can you recommend a sweet tasting plum tree , dwarf size

Fruit and Citrus • Plants

The sweetness of the fruit is genetically determined when the dwarf tree was grafted, you may feed the tree regularly to improve the fruiting in general such as

Yates Thrive Natural Citrus & Fruit Organic Based Pelletised Plant Food, but it will have little affect to the sweetness.  There are some super sweet plum varieties you can look into: Mirabelle, Greengage, D'Agen and Moyer.
